It's been a REALLY long time since I put anything up and decided today was the day to get busy. Wes and I took our son Wes and his fiance Kristen out to learn how to ride a motorcycle. We drove down to our local Marshall's parking lot, actually behind the store to avoid traffic and started the lesson. As you can see from the video, SHE DID GREAT! I am so proud of her that she would even want to learn and then to do so well on her first try. Kristen...YOU ARE AWESOME!!
My daughters and I love a challenge. So, back in late May we decided to take each other on in a $5 Dollar Store Challenge. We found inspiration over at Lindsay's Blog , Living With Lindsay. This is how this challenge goes. You shop your local Dollar Store spending no more than $5 on supplies. Then you put your purchases together, in a different way and make something brand new. You CAN use SOME supplies that you have on hand at your house already to complete it. For our challenge, we decided to put in that it would have to be something patriotic, red, white and blue, or something using 4 th of July type supplies, knowing that the completion date would be right around the first of July. I walked in the door of the store about a month ago and found some really nice, thick placemats like these. The ones I picked up were red and white stripes with a blue star pattern. I was already thinking a purse of some kind so I knew I would need about 3; one for each side and one to cut up for
